I loved the nose and the balance of the 2013 Coyam. In that cool vintage it was a blend of 48% Syrah, 24% Carménère, 11% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Mourvèdre, 3% Malbec and 1% Petit Verdot. It mixes cool and warm climate characteristics and grapes and comes through as both powerful and balanced. The palate is juicy, and the tannins are very fine. There are some oak-related flavors but nothing food or a little more time in bottle couldn’t fix. 219,000 bottles produced.
